The North American AJ Savage came into being as a direct result of the greatest Navy and Government controversy . The book is the 22nd one in the Naval Fighters series

The North American AJ Savage came into being as a direct result of the greatest Navy and Government controversy since Billy Mitchell and the Battleships. This controversy was over the future Nuclear strike capabilities of the Navy. The book is the 22nd one in the Naval Fighters series. It is an 8-1/2" x 11", square bound card cover of 128 pages although for reasons unknown Ginter numbers his pages from the inside front cover. Color is restricted to the front and rear covers although the front cover is (in my opinion) wasted on a plastic kit's box art.

North American AJ Savage. North American AJ-1 Savage (Naval Fighters Number 22). Simi Valley, California: Steve Ginter, 1992. Carrier-based bomber aircraft. The most significant difference between the XAJ-1 and the production aircraft was the revision of the cockpit to accommodate a third crewman in a separate compartment.

Reviews about Naval Fighters Number Twenty-Two North American AJ Savage (5):
Thohelm
My dad flew these with VAH-3, VAH-7, and VAP-62. He's even mentioned by name in the book which surprised me. This book explains a lot of things that he mentioned in passing over the years. Although his real affection was for the A3D Skywarrior that replaced it, he was also fond of the AJ. Great pictures too. As with most of these books, a disproportionate amount of attention is given to West coast squadron's and it would seem that VAH-1 and 11 get most of the east coast press. Most squadron's are still at least mentioned. Probably has more to do with the contributors they located than any real bias though. Still a good book for anyone that remembers the last of the Navy's prop planes. These and the AD-1s kept the air station in Sanford Florida hopping for several years. You could hear them both on preflight warmup and takeoff from several miles away. These days you can be next to the runway and it's nowhere near as loud with the newer planes.

I've owned a number of books edited by Ginter and they've all been pretty good. The emphasis in the series is mostly pictorial and less textual and, I suppose, this makes them more valuable to the modeler than to the historian. Still, there isn't much of anything in print about this aircraft so the book does have value. There is enough development and service history to be satisfactory to me and I'm thankful for that.

This is just what I was looking for. In good condition

This aircraft has always struck me as one that has never received a lot of respect from historians. An example of this is provided by Swanborough's and Bowers' otherwise superb "United States Navy Aircraft since 1911" where the aircraft is relegated to the minor types appendix whereas the far less significant Martin AM Mauler is featured in the main text. This makes it an ideal candidate for inclusion in the Naval Fighters series and author and publisher Steve Ginter does it justice.

The book is the 22nd one in the Naval Fighters series. It is an 8-1/2" x 11", square bound card cover of 128 pages although for reasons unknown Ginter numbers his pages from the inside front cover. Color is restricted to the front and rear covers although the front cover is (in my opinion) wasted on a plastic kit's box art.

The first 50 or so pages is devoted to the aircraft proper with an adequate background and design and development history and description of the various models. In typical Naval Fighters tradition this is superbly supported by a lot of detailed photographs and contemporary technical documentation. Curiously, there seems to be no mention of the eventual 1962 redesignation of the aircraft from AJ to the triservice A-2.

The next 60 or so pages are devoted to a unit by unit service history with the aircraft shown in all appropriate markings in many photographs. These sections can get tedious and repetitious but in this case Ginter livens things up with reminiscences of AJ pilots.

Then there is a section on the AJ in civilian hands as a fire bomber and as an engine testbed for Lycoming. The latter is very entertainingly detailed by the pilot involved, Uri Breier.

The book finishes with some scale model kit reviews. The book apparently went through two separate printings. Between printings a new kit was released. Rather than revise the text, Ginter cleverly but I think ill-advisedly placed the box art on the cover and reviewed the kit in the caption.

Despite flaws, the book can be highly recommended. There is not a great deal of published material on this aircraft and the book is especially valuable for a great addition to it.

Book was excellent if you wanted great detail about the AJ Savage. My father was a trained aircraft mechanic (U.S. Navy), trained at the factory that manufactured this aircraft. The purchase of this book for me was of a historical and personal endeavor to build a family tree. Thus, my father was attached to VC-3 and VC-7, which I was looking for information regarding these units. There is insufficient information on individual military units, their mission, and much of their history.
